hAAlf nAAked thursdAAy
Hayden, my own personal Angel, returns to his home country of Trinidad & Tobago tomorrow. He's taking some university courses which begin the next day.
Don't get me wrong, he has many flaws too, but he's not an alcoholic (yet) and he initiated my entrance into the rooms of AA. He literally saved my life twice.
Current plans are for him to return early next year. For a much longer stay than one month.
(his face does not really look like this; he asked for a little anonymity)

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
that I attend a daily AA meeting at 6:30am where I can be brutally honest and feel safe about it
that we visited my Mom yesterday; she's not doing very well, but continues to hang in there
to hear an AA story (qualification) of a very dysfunctional family gone functional
for the beautiful weather we've had this week
that I've been to NYC twice in 3 months and have yet to walk inside a bar; in my previous life, I would have drank in at least 10 bars, probably many more
that my leg problems associated with Peripheral Artery Disease have improved greatly over the past 6 weeks; I only had 1 flareup while walking all those miles around Manhattan
that my very good friend Kenny (recovery road) is staying sober and as upbeat as possible despite some serious eyesight problems. I don't know what my HP's plan is for Kenny, but I must trust that there is a reason.
I like nonsense; it wakes up the brain cells.
